Divine Avatar of “Kriya Yoga”…..Lahiri Mahasaya

The year 2011 marks the 150th anniversary of Yogavatar Sri Sri Lahiri Mahasaya’s first meeting with the deathless Guru, Sri Sri Mahavatar Babaji near Ranikhet in the Himalayas, and his initiation into the sacred science of Kriya Yoga.

Sri Sri Paramhansa Yoganada first brought this celestial blessings to the attention of the world through his “Autobiography of a Yogi”,in which he said ,
“This auspicious event did not happen to Lahiri Mahasaya alone; it was a fortunate moment for all the human race. The lost or long-vanished, highest art of yoga was being brought to light.

“ The Kriya Yoga that I’m giving to the world through you in this nineteenth century,’
Babaji told Lahiri Mahasaya,’is a revival of the same science that Krishna gave millenniums ago to Arjuna; and that was latter known to Patanjali and Christ….’

“Unknown to society in general, a great spiritual renaissance started in 1861 in remote corner of Banaras.As the fragrance of flowers cannot be suppressed, so Lahiri Mahasaya,
quietly living as an ideal householder, could not hide his innate glory. Devotee-bees from every part of India began to seek the divine nectar of the liberated master.

“As the Ganges came from heaven to earth, in the Puranic story, offering a divine draught to the parched devotee Bhagirath, so in 1861 the celestial river of Kriya Yoga began to flow from the secret fastnesses of the Himalayas into the dusty haunts of men.”

Parmhansa Yoganandaji said, “ The blessed role of Kriya Yoga in East and West has hardly more than just begun.May all men come to know that there exists a definite, scientific technique of Self-Realization for the overcoming of human misery!”

Let us jointly offer devotional garlands at the feet of these Divine Avatars with the
Heart-blossoms of our eternal love and gratitude.
